Primary TechniqueMixed Media
- Two old 12" cardboard vinyl record jackets
- One lid from a packaging box with a length of 12" on its shortest sides
- Pack of 100 white round paper doilies with a diameter of 4"
- 25mm red glitter pom-poms
- Five suitable wooden Christmas tree ornaments
- 9" of red satin ribbon that is 0.3" wide
- Clear-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Standard scissors
- Two plastic lids, one with a diameter of 11.7" and the second with a diameter of 7.4"
Cut open the sides of each jacket. Trace two circles with a diameter of 11.7" onto each jacket and cut them out. You must have four circles in total.
Center and place the plastic lid with the diameter of 7.4" on the first circle and trace around the plastic lid. Cut out the inner circle. Repeat with the other three circles cut from the cardboard jackets.
Trace a circle with a diameter of 11.7" on the lid from the cardboard box and cut it out. Center and place the plastic lid with the diameter of 7.4" on this circle, trace around the plastic lid and also cut out the inner circle.
Glue two circles cut from jackets on each side of the circle cut from the cardboard box to make a sturdy base for the wreath.
Fold a paper doily in half, then pinch it in the center and ruffle it up towards the center of the doily to form a flower. Add a drop of hot glue to the cardboard wreath base and glue the center of the doily flower to the base.
Add the second doily in the same way, gluing it right next to the first. Keep adding doily flowers until the wreath base has been covered.
Make a loop with the ribbon and hot glue it to the top of the wreath.
To complete the wreath, hot glue the pom-poms and wooden ornaments in place.
